Infrastructure investment

Transport is a major contributor to economic outcomes. The transport sector represents 4.4 percent of GDP, and almost half of Australia’s major infrastructure construction is undertaken within the transport sector.

Investment in and delivery of publicly owned transport infrastructure is the responsibility of all three levels of government. The Australian Government has committed over $75 billion for the next 10 years to transport infrastructure across Australia. This investment is assisting in building more liveable cities, enabling better-connected regional communities, driving key productivity improvements and creating safer roads.

NICS will continue to be updated as specific project information and commitments are announced by the Australian, state and territory governments.

The three sewage treatment plants (STPs) within the Devonport region are all ageing and suffer significant impacts from stormwater and industrial loads. All plants are reaching their capacity which will curtail and impede future residential, commercial and industrial development in the North-West of Tasmania. The likely outcome will be to decommission the two STP’s at Port Sorell and Latrobe, provide storage at the Port Sorell and Latrobe STP’s and pump sewage to a newly upgraded STP at Pardoe.

A conceptual design and budget estimate was provided to achieve 200ML/d treated water through the Bryn Estyn water treatment plant. This figure is based on a 2020 growth forecast.

The Greater Launceston Water Supply System is comprised of five separate systems that have varying levels of interconnections. The two largest systems, Distillery Creek and North Esk are at capacity and subject to water extraction limitations in dry years. Work needs to be completed to address the raw water and infrastructure capacity limitations throughout the system. This work is likely to include bulk pipeline capacity upgrades and additional storage.

The preferred methodology currently is to construct a new sewage treatment plant (STP) at Ti-Tree Bend and rationalise the six sewer treatment plants at Hoblers Bridge, Legana, Newnham, Norwood, Prospect and Riverside and transfer to the new Ti-Tree Bend STP.

Project Logo

The Distillery Creek Water Treatment Plant is located approximately 6km east of the Launceston CBD. Trunk water-mains gravity feed treated water to a series of reservoirs to service different zones around Launceston. Some of these trunk water-mains were constructed in the late 1800’s and are still in use. It is recommended parts of the Distillery Creek water scheme pipeline are replaced as they are in excess of 120 years old and have passed the 80 years (unlined) life expectancy for cast iron pipes.
